The DeBoom name is one that is familiar in the endurance community. After Tim DeBoom’s back-to-back wins at Kona in 2001 and 2002, the DeBoom name became synonymous with success in triathlon. Tim’s older brother Tony also competed as a top tier triathlete. Tony had a successful career racing around the world as an age grouper and pro competing in Olympic and full Ironman distance triathlons. During his time racing, Tony finished runner-up behind his brother Tim at Ironman California, won Ironman Utah, and earned a coveted spot as an alternate for the 2000 US Olympic Triathlon Team.
As an INFINIT Formulation Specialist, I hear a handful of common questions everyday. One of the biggest sources of confusion for athletes is how to set up their nutrition strategy for a multisport event like triathlon. Many people assume that a single formula should cover them throughout the entire event. But as I’m about to explain, this simply isn’t the case. The best bike nutrition is NOT the best nutrition for your run, and trying to use the same nutrition for both could potentially create issues for you come race day.

Ironman Coeur 'd Alene was my 14th full Ironman. I crossed the line in 9 hours and 58 minutes after partaking in one of the toughest Ironman battles of my career. The course topography, the Fahrenheit and fierce competition all stepped up to deliver a worthy engagement. 9 hours and 58 minutes is 35,880 seconds. The peculiar thing about this race is the second that stands out most in my mind is the one right before the starter fired the gun. That fraction of time between the command 'Get Set' and the start. Index finger flexed on the trigger. I remember feeling immensely happy and excited. I was ready for the pain of racing and more than ever I was hoping for a battle. Well, Amber got what she wanted.
More than halfway through our inaugural year, we’ve set a solid foundation and are gaining serious momentum in pursuit our end goal: closing the gender gap in triathlon. Back in May, about halfway through the Women For Tri Founding Advisory Board’s first term, we all gathered at Ironman Texas for a meeting and to bring some visibility to the new Ironman/Life Time initiative through an expo presence. We talked to a lot of triathletes and non-triathletes about our efforts to draw more women into the sport and even sold a decent number of T-shirts (with a dollar match by Ironman and Life Time) to support our broader fundraising efforts (more on that later).
This past weekend INFINIT Nutrition had the pleasure of sponsoring and attending the Hincapie Gran Fondo just outside Greenville South Carolina. The event was set in some of the most spectacular riding areas in the country, all highlighted by amazing fall scenery and colors. Add in some pretty special riding partners with the likes of Cadel Evans, George Hincapie, Ted King, the Nation TTT Champions, and the Hincapie Pro Cycling team and it all adds up to a bucket list event.
INFINIT Sponsored Athlete Brittany Warly Helps Her Team Win the 2015 USAT Collegiate Nationals. It has been years of playing the balancing act between school and sport. Going into my junior year of mechanical engineering, I definitely underestimated the rigors of my classes and the time that would need to be invested in my academics. It ended up being about 60 hours a week, and training had to take it's place on the back burner for a while.
